Double Trouble Bar and Club

This is one of the city’s most popular cellar bars, and that is saying something considering how many of them there are in Prague.  Somewhat hard to find, the Double Trouble is located between Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square.  If you like a more intimate club scene, then this is the spot for you.  There is dancing which generally gets underway around midnight when patrons begin dancing on every flat surface they can find, including the bar!  Music is supplied by DJ’s from Monday through Saturday.

Hours: Monday through Thursday – 7:00 pm until 4:00 am, Friday and Saturday – 7:00 pm until 5:00 am. website

Welcome to the Bar And Books – a venue where pleasures like these can be constantly enjoyed. The bar has a couple of addresses – at Mánesova Sixty-Four, Prague Two, close to Metro A travelling to Jiřího z Poděbrad, and at Týnská Nineteen, Prague One, in the centre of Prague. website
